Re:Where to store large image files and how to configure?

The CMOS camera I am contemplating using has huge file sizes especially unbinned. I was considering a flashdrive but all of the Stellarmate ports will be used by equipment. I would like to avoid another powered hub if possible. My set up is a permanent remote one with Stellarmate connected to the observatory network. I am guessing I could use one of the windows machines on the network that has storage space? Not sure that my internet speed is fast enough to use cloud storage. I am curious how people are handling this and how to configure Stellarmate if using external storage locations.
Thanks

I mount a NFS share and save to that, unfortunately Stellarmate still can't auto mount my NFS (though Astroberry does).

If you've got a Windows shared drive then I'd give that a try.

Options are to use external SSD, or Network Share. You think you're going to store more than 128GB of data in a short time?

Not any time soon. Eventually it could be a concern. I'm just thinking ahead :)

Another vote for a network share.

I share a directory I call NEW.CAPTURES from my desktop machine inside to /NEW.CAPTURES on the pi. Ekos saves all my FITS files in there, so they're all ready for PixInsight on the fast desktop machine.

Pretty easy to set up and very reliable.

RClone could be  a solution that sync a local folder with a service like OneDrive GDrive ecc.
I prefer share a folder via Windows share between a raspberry and my windows desktop, the same folder are also shared via FTP that is more reliable than windows share and better for a large volume of files
